what i did on my blog vacation:

When on a blog vacation, it is, first of all, very important to maintain some link to your everyday life. This will help to ease the shock of returning after the vacation.

It is also worthwhile to consider bringing along a favourite pastime activity, so you can engage in it obsessively while doing the inevitable waiting and being trapped in a moving vehicle that are usually associated with vacationing.

Pumpkin Closeup

(Seriously. How cute is that, people??)

Also, you can get your pets in on the action by suggesting they make an end run for the light as you're about to pack stuff into the car to leave. This way, your itenerary will remain chaotic stressful flexible, and unstructured.

Finally, having a secret project can add an air of mystery, suspense, and excitement to an otherwise typical blog vacation. (* images altered to protect the identity of the innocent and surprise-destined.)

(All will be revealed at the completion of the project, as I know full well that the intended recipient reads here. Blame Natalie, not me!)

I hope this brief guide to nonvacations has helped to demonstrate how not to make your own blog vacations a rousing success. Tune in next time for Tiffany on another useful topic: "How to not get homework done!"

....Oh, and did I mention that I'm going to Rhinebeck?
